Winter Gatherings, At Home, In the Office

Thinking of holiday food for gatherings? Northern Waters Smokehaus may be able to give you a leg up.

December is a natural month for gatherings – just cold enough to wet the appetite and light the fires, but not yet the prohibitive deep freeze of January. And what is better for a gathering than hand-made smoked fish and meats?

We at the Smokehaus love to roast ourselves and our meals together, defying the dark and the snow, in our garages and backyards. We have a long and passionate history with gatherings – providing them and participating!

What’s your company tradition? Do you love your company’s company like we do? Let us jump in: we are offering platters, gift boxes, and lunches all through the holiday season – from the coveted All Season Fillet of Smoked Salmon to our Small Sampler Gift Box, we are eager to please – and, between our mail order department, catering department, and our Duluth delivery, we can offer our stuff  pretty much anywhere.

Our smoked fish and meats are perfect for entertaining – they are  ready to eat, luxurious, local and unique. We provide wooden platters brimming with slices of smoked pork loin, salami, olives, and cheeses for the boardroom or break room; we ship insulated boxes full of carefully packaged and impeccably smoked salmon, whitefish, and lake trout (or anything else your heart desires) straight to the office, the home, or the nearest campfire (if has a physical address, FedEx will find it!).

So, go on – get toasty, eat well, laugh together, and enjoy a little holiday spirit. We all deserve it a little, right?

Are We Busy? Never Too Busy For You … Except Maybe Next Weekend.

Hello out there, blog-o-philes! We’ve been having a blast this summer, slinging sandwiches, remodeling our store, biking out goodies to denizens of downtown Duluth, concocting fantasies of feasts all over the North and South Shores of Lake Superior with our catering crew, and selling a few choice items at the Mill City Farmer’s Market and Kingfield Farmer’s Market. Unfortunately, this weekend’s scheduled markets are canceled due to a staffing issue. Apologies! We will be back on October 24th and 25th, though with bells on!

We’re Headed South

We are headed down to the big city this weekend to sell our salami and – for the very first time – smoked fish! Come see us at Bachman’s Garden Center for the Kingfield/Fulton Farmers Market.

We are genuinely delighted to bring our fish to Minneapolis! Last summer, our new customers at Kingfield were loving the salami but begging for our unique smoked fish. So, we worked on logistics, bought a NSF milk cooler, a trailer, and an extra vacuum packer;  activated the mail order department (April is AMAZING, for real), the smoking department (those dudes, equally amazing – but I reserve all caps for April because we’re close like that), and the marketing department (that’s me, I went to a Google seminar and got a You Tube mug); and made very bizarre arrangements with an Airbnb host.

All this falderal is for a mere four and a half hours of commerce, and we’re dying to see how it goes – come say hi, hopefully we’ll be the booth with the peaceful frenzy enveloping it.

We will be at Bachman’s Garden Center at 6010 Lyndale Ave South from 9-1:30 on Saturday, March 28th.

We will be selling Salamini, Pepperoni, Chorizo, Saucisson Sec, Smoked Lake Superior Lake Trout, Smoked Atlantic Salmon, Smoked Atlantic Salmon with Black Pepper and Coriander, All-Season Fillets of Smoked Atlantic Salmon, and Smoked Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon.
